I can't figure whether I would rate Hamilton or Button higher. Hamilton certainly has the raw speed, but at times he seems panicky and it causes him to make foolish mistakes. Button may not be naturally as quick, but I think he's clearly smarter in his approach to races and often, that's what is needed.

As for Alonso, I think the fact that he almost took the title off Vettel in an inferior car, and then this year almost took third in a car that was never really better than 5th best, shows his talent. I think , put the top 3 or 4 drivers in the same cars and Alonso comes out on top 8 out of 10 times.
